directly conflicts the description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. this was on september 16th, five days after the attack. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> that from the obama administration again on september the 16th. yesterday, october the 9th, the state department says there were no protests outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi. today congress is set on to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether or not the administration initially down played the link to terrorism. >>> in pennsylvania, jerry sandusky, the former defensive coordin

that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech at u.n. six times he talked about the youtube video. >> the intelligence community told us that. as they learned more facts about exactly what happened they changed their assessment. jon: the heat got hotter. things got sparky when they sparked over their plans for medicare. >> their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> here is the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggy bank for obamacare. their own actuary from the administration said one out of six hospital and nursing homes will go out of business as a result of this. 7.4million seniors are projected lose the immediate toda medicare advantage they have. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president, i know -- mr. vice president i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground.

by a video. so the idea that they could still be five days later having a u.n. ambassador out on the national tv programs claiming the video was the poety visiting factor are -- motivating factor when long before that there was strong indications and the conclusions as you heard the testimony that day from a chief person at the state department who said within 24 hours t was h his conclusion that it was a terrorist dominated issue. so who is talking to the state department? and the real lack of accountability as if somehow you can sit up in this ivory tower and have no responsibility for what goes on below you. and the misrepresentation which i consider to be a gross misrepresentation by the vice president that they didn't know anything about requests again sort of if you close your ears that somehow you are not accountable and i just do not buy it. >> mike: assuming that the president and vice president did not know about the security requests because there are consulates all over the word and embassies all over the world. i understand there would be thousands literally of reports that might
and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the u.n. in this old conflict as in every challenge we face in the middle east, only a new president will bring the chance to begin anew. there is a longing for american leadership in the middle east. it's not unique to that region. it's broadly felt by america's friends and allies in other parts of the world as well. in europe, where putin's russia casts a long shadow over young democracies and where our oldest allies have been told per pivoting away from them. in asia and across the pacific where china's assertiveness is sending chills throughout the region and in our hemisphere where neighbors in latin america want to resist hugo chavez, the castro brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade, energy and security. but in all of these places just as in the middle east the question is asked, where does america stand. i know many americans are asking, why us? i know many americans are asking whether our country today with our ailing economy and massive debt and after 11 years of war is still capable of leading. i
